If former President John Dramani Mahama wins the 2024 elections, private attorney Maurice Ampaw has pledged to depart Ghana.
He claimed that he would not submit to Mahama’s rule once more after witnessing what the National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential contender for the 2024 elections could do while serving as president from 2012 to 2016.
Lawyer Ampaw said that he would rather live in the neighboring country of Togo than let himself to be controlled by Mahama once again in an interview with Kumasi-based Angel FM on September 10, 2023.
“I would not allow Mahama to rule over me for the second time, I would go to Togo. I’m telling you, mark it on the wall. I would leave the country.
“… if Mahama wins, I will go and live in Togo for four years. What is Mahama coming to do in government again?” he asked in Twi.
Ampaw stated that he does not want Mahama to run for president once again since he can only hold the position for four years, and Mahama has already stated that this time period is insufficient to reform the nation.
He asserted that Mahama will exploit his second coming to extort money from the government to pay off his enormous debts accumulated from his political campaigns since 2016.
“Mahama himself said that four years is not enough to do something good for the country; so what is he coming to do? He knows that the problems we have in Ghana today cannot be solved in four years.
“He is also in serious debt. He has not paid the money he used for the 2016 campaign, the money he used for the 2020 elections,” the lawyer said.
